Leading The Blind

Republican or Democrat,

the wool has been pulled

 

Over the eyes

of a nation of fools

 

The truth is just fine

if we get it spoon fed

 

In our favorite flavor

self-served in our beds

 

While off in the distance

an Angel stands guard

 

Bemused at the folly

we ‘Stepfords’ regard

 

And as he takes flight,

looking down at the fray

 

Seeing into the future…

that reckoning day

 

When we kill one another,

without knowing why

 

Lost sheep running rampant

—redemption denied

 

(Garrett Hill Pennsylvania: October, 2020)
